President Barack Obama is set to headline Al Sharpton's National Action Network (NAN) conference that is being held in New York April 9th through April 12th.
The Sharpton conference ostensibly is to "honor" the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. Organizers claim that the event is not just for honoring King but for "proactively engaging in dialogue that will spawn change." Al Sharpton founded NAN in 1991 when he was but a community agitator in New York, long before he became an MSNBC TV host. For his work with the organization, NAN paid Sharpton nearly $250,000 in 2011.
But the organization has had numerous money problems and has even been investigated by the federal government. In 2006, the IRS fined the organization for not properly reporting its taxes. It still owes $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties. Sharpton has also used his position in NAN to shake down several corporations for donations. To get the cash, Sharpton repeatedly issued veiled threats in which he promised not to boycott the companies--in exchange for donations.
Al Sharpton was convicted of defamation for his criminal actions during the Tawana Brawley rape hoax. Four years later, he founded NAN. That same year, the community agitator went on to inflame the Crown Heights riots.

You don’t want to know.
It’s the new super-secret handshake among libs.
Even Jesse looks like he’s going, “WTF?!?!?”
The whole time he's there, I hope the Prez keeps his wallet stuffed in the elastic waistband of his Fruit of the Loom panties......and checks for it every 10 minutes to make sure it's still there.
Keynote speaker = Tawana Brawley. Hurry, tickets are going fast!
Hmm, I have always assumed that Prez gets his panties from Victoria's Secret.
Al Sharpton, the man who had his goons murder 8 people at Freddy’s Fashion Mart?
Maybe Obama likes him so much for attempting to launder money for cocaine deals with mobster Michael Franzese.
Incredible. Blacks are about (based on an optimistic government count) 12% of our population, and gays are between 1-2%. Probably “professional blacks” (that is, people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson) and “professional gays” (that is, the leaders of pressure groups) are about .01% of our population. But between them, they’re controlling the entire country, thanks to the Democratic Party.
“proactively engaging in dialogue that will spawn change.”
We strive to have a conversation that will speak truth to power, inspire new paradigms, grow diversity and ...
Whenever I see this kind of political gobbling, I know a lefty’s talking.
Racists hang together. Thanks Hojczyk.

“Resist we much! We must and we will much. About that, be committed. “
Those are the reasons he's a 'hero' in the guilty white liberal book...
